The Blueproject Foundation (57 Princesa Street, Barcelona), organizes the first solo exhibition in Spain of artist Chen Zhen, a referent of the Chinese contemporary art. The exhibition Chen Zhen: In-Between reflects on the interior balance, the principles of the eastern culture and the fragility of the individual inner being. The exhibition will be open until 22 February 2015.
It proposes a tour of the most essential concerns of the Chinese artist and the deepest problems of his work through a selection of five representative installations of the artist’s trajectory and a series of drawings and sketches.
Chen Zhen (Shanghai 1955 – Paris 2000) is one of the biggest representatives of the Chinese contemporary art and precursor of the western interest in Chinese art. He belongs to the generation following the Chinese Cultural Revolution, which started to change the paradigm of contemporary art at the beginning of the eighties.
